West Bow and Victoria Street

December 2007

This photo was taken at about dusk, around the shortest day of the year, December 22, 2007.

The wet cobbles of West Bow (beside the well, out of picture on the left) are in the foreground. 

The Christmas lights strung across Victoria Street can just be seen in the centre of the picture

The tall steeple of the Tollbooth St John's Church, now 'The Hub' center for Edinburgh Festival tickets can be seen in the background:
